About Kimberley

Kimberley is a tight-knit resort community nestled between the Purcell and Rocky mountain ranges of the East Kootenay region of British Columbia. Kimberley has transitioned from a successful mining town to a four-season recreation and tourism destination. The area’s fascinating history is evident in the city’s many well-preserved historical attractions. Today, the European alpine theme sets this picturesque little city apart from nearby communities.

As Canada’s second-highest city, Kimberley's altitude and heavy snowfalls make it a favoured alpine sport destination. Kimberley is also renowned for its golf during the warm, sunny summers. Its three championship courses are ranked among the top places to visit here. Shoulder seasons offer added attractions along with a quieter atmosphere.  The fall’s fiery Tamarak trees, for example, are unique to this area.

Kimberley offers a number of activities that can be enjoyed close to or within the city limits. Visitors will find plenty to explore near the Platz, a pedestrian walkway lined with picturesque shops, cafes, galleries, restaurants and a large cuckoo clock. The residents are welcoming, down-to-earth outdoor enthusiasts.  When in doubt, ask a local where and when to best enjoy all Kimberley has to offer.

Wildlife in the Area

Kimberley is surrounded by impressive mountain scenery, vast wilderness and a variety of nearby national, provincial and municipal parks.  Bear, elk, moose, deer and even cougar sightings are common in the area. From Bald Eagles to Hummingbirds, Kimberley also offers variety for the bird enthusiast.
